The Lime Inn restaurant is located in downtown Cruz Bay and has been a favorite between locals and visitors alike since 1984. Still owned and operated by owners Rich and Chris Meyer, your St. John experience is not complete without a visit to our open-air restaurant and a taste of our extensive menu. We are known for our wonderful staff and delicious and consistent meals. Join us for fresh grilled Caribbean Lobster or our whole jerk seasoned and pan seared snapper! You can also eat light with our selection of salads or our famous clam chowder. But don't forget, you can't finish up lunch or dinner without famous Key Lime pie. We are open for Lunch Monday thru Friday from 11:30 to 3, happy hour from Monday thru Saturday at our courtyard bar from 3-6 (1/2 priced drinks), and dinner Monday thru Friday from 5:30 to 10.

ate twice here! Fabulous!

We have eaten here before and ate here twice on our recent vacation. Lime Inn does not disappoint! They have great cocktails and great food! And everything is reasonably priced. Service continues to be above par!

Great fresh fish. Awesome cocktails. We couldn't decide which was better the Tuna or Mahi, so we would order both and split. Friendly wait staff and bar staff. Don't miss if you are down in Cruz Bay and looking for really good food at reasonable price.

We just came back from a lovely dinner at The Lime Inn. We walked in with a party of 11 and they were great about accommodating us. Kids had one table and adults another. Kids food came out slowly but our food was fairly prompt. Everyone really enjoyed their meals! Staff was so friendly!

There was nothing special about this eatery. It was decent good but did not knock me off the ground as special.

I ate a tuna steak there that may have been the best meal I have ever had. It also had a delicious sauce with ginger, soy, and wasabi. I can tell it was made by people who love food.

This was the first place we ate on the island after it was suggested to us. Great spot. Accommodating to children and special dietary needs (non dairy). Food was good and menu was full of options. Good cocktails, too.

The Lime in has always been one of my favorite places to eat on the island. There is never bad food, there is never bad service, and people work hard there for you to have an quality experience. We went twice on our trip, the first night was amazing food. We like going for their lobster and its a place... More

Great combination of friendly, professional service, comfy atmosphere & very nice variety of quality food including fresh grilled lobster, bacon wrapped scallops, fresh fish & tasty filet mignon. The chowder is awesome as well.
